Several physiological and psychological benefits can be achieved with exercise training provided an adequate exercise threshold is reached. In recommending exercise regimens to obese individuals, it is important to consider the exercise intensity, frequency, and duration that is most likely to lead to the desired benefits of exercise training. The special problems that some obese individuals may encounter with exercise training should also be considered. Walk/jog and stationary cycling are the two most commonly recommended modes of exercise. Aquatic exercise, due to the buoyancy and thermal properties of water, may be especially suitable as a method of exercise for obese individuals. In addition to swimming, cycling exercise and aerobic dance can be performed in a water environment.
